Requests like this belong in the JavaRanch forum.

When there are enough posts about Resin to make it worth while.

Kind of a chicken and an egg thing isn't it....
Based on your logic, when are you going to drop the Orion forum....
It's little light bulb has been white for a while.
And when you enter the forum, there is only one post from several weeks ago.

In the same period that Orion has had 100 posts, Resin has had less than 20. Orion got a forum because there seemed to be a demand for it at the time. The forum may be merged back into "other" if the forum is not used.

As a keen Resin user myself, I'd certainly participate in a Resin forum, and I don't often get to spend much time in the more general server/servlet/JSP forums.
On the other hand, the level of support on the Resin mailing lists is very good (as I am sure Rick will agree), and I guess a lot of users would try there first.
Really, I guess what we need is some sort of poll, to see what servers people actually use. I'd guess the huge majority use Tomcat in a "huh? you mean there are others, then?" sort of way, but of the savvy users it would be nice to see which one(s) people have chosen and why. Although most of my work is on Resin these days, I still have a soft spot for Jetty and BajieServer.

I agree with what you are saying Frank (my favorite sherrif). A counter point, JBoss also has a forum on their site, and one here.
I would participate in the Resin forum.
I think you would be surprised how many people are starting to use Resin. Its mailing list is very active.

What year was that? I know Orion was the hippest coolest not to mention fastest. But is it still?
Here is so more information on Orion...
I read this a while ago, but could not remember where it was... Well... I found it.

I'm sure the developers are great guys and I'm glad they're doing well. However, they have not been demonstrating continued improvements in their product.
Are bidirectional relationships still unimplemented? As of 1.5.3 they weren't. And M-N relationships were buggy.
Local interfaces showed up in experimental version 1.5.4, but that release is so horribly broken otherwise that it's unusable.
Their latest (working) offering is not materially different than the one-year-ago version. Actually, I take it back - their current stable version *IS* the one-year-ago version (released 2 Jun 2001).
Every 4 months or so someone posts "Is Orion dead?" to the orion-interest list, and the handful of die-hards respond with "new release coming, be patient!" Well, this time it's gone several cycles without a release.
I'd call that dead. The mailing list certainly is.
(If I sound a little bitter, it's because of the time I'm "wasting" porting my apps to JBoss 3.0)

I don't think Orion is dead as in dead dead, but it seems like all of the energy is going into Oracle OAS. <<just an opinion>>
Resin, on the other hand, is very active, and has recieved a lot of good press (mainstream and blogs).
This weeks featured article on OnJava is about Resin.
Resin: The Instant Application Server by Daniel Solin 09/18/2002


Imagine a Java Web application server that runs on Unix, delivers incredible performance, is really easy to set up, and inexpensive to boot. Even crazier, imagine that this little app server offers all of the features you expect from a modern Java server, including JSP/servlets, XML/XSL, and EJB/CMP.

You can stop imagining. It actually exists, and it goes by the name of Resin. In this article, we will show you how to install Resin and get it running; we'll conclude with an EJB/CMP example that shows how Resin makes these techniques easily usable. If you have worked with installations of Java servers before, I think you will be amazed at how fast and simple Resin is. At an ISP I worked for, we had Resin up and running in a matter of minutes.

More Resin posts on this site than JBoss.
Perform the following search on Google
JBoss site:saloon.javaranch.com
This searches for JBoss only in the Java Ranch Forum area.
Now do the same for Resin.
Resin site:saloon.javaranch.com
And the Winner is.... You guessed it Resin!
Resin 168 matches
JBoss 139 matches
And JBoss has its own forum already so it has a slight advantage.
So based on this logic....

Resin should have its own forum.
